I often feel I am procrastinating. However, reading what you said here makes me think about it in a new way. This is very helpful, and I really appreciate it!

You have a brilliant mind that has an innovative and accurate way of viewing things! Caroline, thank you for being the special person you are! My mind has been brilliant and innovative as well when helping others. Yet, dull and inaccurate when viewing my own needs and how to fulfill them. I was always sad about my tendency toward procrastination, even-though I accomplished great things throughout my adult life (much for other people, some for myself). Procrastination is my achilles heel. I could not understand why I had this tendency. Yet at the same time, I always felt Highly-Sensitive and therefore thought I “couldn’t handle” overload (negative emotions in myself or others.) Now after reading your brilliant/innovative/accurate article, I see how the overload was truly that…too much old and new grass to chew on simultaneously. And all 11 reasons fit me to the tee, a couple reasons happened during some seasons of my life, but usually a few reasons happened simultaneously during most of my life…including now. Mahalo, mahalo, mahalo (thank you, thank you, thank you.) Now it’s time for this pretty purple cow to walk off the grassy green meadow and into the barn for a break. (now that’s a brilliant idea Germaine!)

That’s great Germaine, enjoy the barn! :)
